ssh-copy-id using a different/custom port

Image
Have you ever created your own cloud server and changed your ssh port from the default 22 to something else? And have you ever tried to use ssh-copy-id to copy your local ssh public key to the remote and it doesn't work?

The answer is simple. There are no parameters that you can provide for ssh-copy-id command. Instead do the following:

ssh-copy-id -i id_rsa.pub "user@domain.com -p 12345" That's it. It should work without a problem.
